BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2016
Dear, friends —
The stresses of life place a burden on children and adults alike. The Y equips families throughout New York City to better face challenges both expected and unexpected. The challenge to learn. The challenge to become healthier. The challenge to establish a whole new family after your own family falls apart…
Time and time again we have heard stories of families experiencing personal tragedy, substance abuse, and medical or economic problems.
When life-threatening challenges arise, families need a solid foundation of support — something the Y provides every day in all five boroughs. That's why Angelo, a working grandfather who was so concerned about his readiness to take on the responsibilities of a new child, said: "The Y was a godsend because it gave me a strong sense of security to know he was safe, making friends, and adjusting."
Because you care about the future of New York City, please help us keep families like Angelo's and Skylar's from feeling alone and vulnerable. Every day, the Y offers a sense of security, safety and friendship to families in all five boroughs.
City families need our help. And what we can do with your help is much greater than what we can do without you. By joining with us, you can help us give more kids and families strength and hope.
Together we can strengthen families for a brighter and stronger New York City.
Your thoughtful support will help change many lives for the better. I hope to hear from you today. Thank you.
